Oh boy, I am the pfizer corporation sponsored ■■■■, wait, I mean athlete and scholar, and Geodon in the only AP I am on right now. I just took my morning dose with breakfast.
It does have side effects. Akathisia may happen, I have it. No sexual or hormone problems, I just last pretty long with a condom on…that’s not inappropriate, you should know these sorts of things. It does change the heart rhythm, which will probably take years off of my life, but so does smoking and I do that too.
It doesnt sedate me that much. I mean I can tell I am on something and I sleep nine hours and have vivid dreams, but I just drink caffeine and do all sorts of things on this medication. If anything it has made me concentrate better because I am not experiencing as many symptoms. Well, not after I take my morning dose I am not. Don’t wanna see me when I wake up. It’s ugly.
You should give it a shot- it is known to be less sedating and weight neutral. I take 120mg a day, minimum effective dose for schizophrenia being 80mg and the max dose being 160mg.
Do take it with food, it has an eight hour half life that will just knock you out and have you wake up crazy if you dont delay the half life with a solid meal. It is supposed to be taken with breakfast and dinner, if your doc tries to give you it all at night, call him/her on it and say you’ve done your research.
It is the shield of the Almighty Mouse, while insight is his sword. A pretty huge sword. Most of the time I just put the shield on my back and use two hands to swing the over-sized sword.
If you want to know more, just ask. Also, you can’t stack many prescription drugs with Geodon, there is a lengthy list of no-no combinations in one of my books. Alcohol in moderation is fine with the drug, so is caffeine. Nicotine does lower the blood level of the drug, but unless you smoke over a pack a day you shouldn’t worry.
